Jane Austen: Emma

Jane Austen January moves onto:

Emma (1815)

Beautiful, clever, rich - and single - Emma Woodhouse is perfectly content with her life and sees no need for either love or marriage. Nothing, however, delights her more than interfering in the romantic lives of others. But when she ignores the warnings of her good friend Mr Knightley and attempts to arrange a suitable match for her protégée Harriet Smith, her carefully laid plans soon unravel and have consequences that she never expected. With its imperfect but charming heroine and its witty and subtle exploration of relationships, Emma is often seen as Jane Austen's most flawless work.

which will run until February 25th.

  1. I really liked this one, although in parts, I was just getting really frustrated with her! It's been a while since I read it so I can't remember all the details but I was quite satisfied when I got to the end and was smiling...
